While browsing through the Pretty Little Studio shop I fell in love with the Marigold collection. The colors, the design, … everything just spoke to me. So I ordered myself a bunch of the embellishments from that line, and when I finally received them at home, it was like summer in an envelope. So no wonder I made two layouts with a huge summer feel to them.

 For this layout, I first started with painting a light layer of gesso onto my background, which made a good foundation for adding the watercolor. I wanted to work with those flower cut-outs in white cardstock, so a bit of color to the background would help make them stand out. After matching the Pretty Little Studio goodness with my Pinkfresh Studio products, I decided to go with a peach/orange and yellow color combo.

After arranging my flowers and stitching them onto my layout, I started laying out my title. The beautiful coral color makes the background color pop. I positioned them onto dimensional adhesive. The Camelia Phrase Strips and Wisteria Word Flags bring in more color and the right sentiments.

I’m totally swooning over these Pinkfresh Studio Chevron Wood Stickers. I almost decided to hoard them, but could resist;) They look so beautiful on this layout. They add color and texture, all in a small embellishment. Love them! What I also love is the look of the Pretty Little Studio Clematis tabs behind my picture. They have the perfect size, not too small, not too large.

For my second layout I went on with the Marigold theme. In the end both layouts turned out to have the same color scheme. I wanted to go more peach and green with this second one, but I really couldn’t find the right shade of green, so yellow it was. I guess I just need to go buy some more paint then;) The background of this layout is made with acrylic paints. I applied them to my page with a palette knife.

I ordered myself the cloud die-cuts from that same Marigold collection, because I wanted to experiment with them. I wanted to add color and texture to them, but since this layout had an eye-catching background, I decided to just keep them white for this layout. I’ll surely be playing with them on another occasion, can’t wait to see what they can take. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the quality of them already, they’re thick and lovely.

I added some of the beautiful enamel label stickers from Pinkfresh Studio in that same peach color. The yellow triangle wood veneers guide your eyes around the page. Some light grey stamping and splatters, along with a soft grey striped backgroung paper finish up the layout.
